Registrar reminds voters to return your mail ballots

If you’re a registered voter and you haven’t cast your ballot yet, you will have already received a reminder from the Registrar’s office that you now have less than a week to cast your ballot for the Nov. 3 Presidential General Election.

The Registrar sent over 1.6 million reminder postcards to registered voters in San Diego County who had not returned their mail ballot as of Oct. 14.

Don’t delay! If you have been holding onto your ballot, act now and vote from the comfort and safety of your home. Sign and date your return envelope, seal your completed ballot inside and return it to a trusted source.

Fallbrook has two drop off locations. Fallbrook Library, 124 S. Mission Road, is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. now through Nov. 2. On Nov. 3, it will be open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. VFW Post 1924, 1175 Old Stage Road, is open 4-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and will be open Nov. 3, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

In Bonsall, the Bonsall Chamber of Commerce office, 5256 S. Mission Road, Suite 311, will be open to accept ballots Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesday, Nov. 3, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The sooner the Registrar’s office receives your ballot, the sooner it is processed for the first release of Election Night results.

If you have not received your mail ballot, contact the Registrar’s office at 858-565-5800.

If you do have your mail ballot but you need to vote in person that option is available too. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Registrar’s office encourages older adults and people with underlying medical conditions to avoid long lines and crowded polling places by voting early. You can do so:

· Now at the Registrar’s office, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday

· At your assigned polling place or the Registrar’s office 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting Saturday, Oct. 31, through Monday, Nov. 2

All will again be open on Election Day, Nov. 3, when the voting hours change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If you plan to vote in person, be prepared. Wear your face mask, go to your assigned polling place and plan to maintain social distance. Your polling place has most likely changed so check the back of your sample ballot and voter information pamphlet for your poll location or look it up at
